  • Skychic,

    For your own benefit, it really does help to get the units right!

    Armour Thyroid will be 90 milligrams (mg). T3 will be 20 micrograms (µg or, very often in medicine, mcg).

    It would be really helpful for you to have and to post any test results you have had. They might help us to understand why this is being done - whether or not we agree.

    Not at all comfortable with you being told to make changes via a nurse. Seems unreasonable to do so without you having any possibility of discussing.

  • Skychic,

    Members are not likely to be able to advise without seeing your recent thyroid labs. If you want to post your results please include the ranges (the figures in brackets after the results) and members will advise.
